Some guests thought Mr. Disney was drunk, since they had never seen him act so giddy before, but his daughter Diane knew that her father wasn't drunk. She knew he was just overjoyed that his biggest dream was going to be a reality in just a few short days and he was proud to finally share it all with his friends and family.
While Mr. Disney couldn't be 100% certain that the public would accept his latest venture, for one night he could forget about the loans, construction timetables and stress. For one night he would be the king of all he surveyed- his beloved DISNEYLAND. Of course, the world would fall in love with the place; a place that existed, as Art Linkletter once pointed out, because Walt wanted it to.
